    One thought on “My New Crush Gave to Me”

    1. What I think that readers and writers tend to forget is that high school kids can be pretty immature. A LOT of these YA books I read, the characters act way past their actual age. I feel like Petroff pulls off the teens in this book extremely well, and the same with her other book I read. So, I get annoyed when I see reviewers say stuff about characters acting way immature in YA books where they match the age. I'm sorry did you act like you were 40 years old when you were in high school? Anyway, [...]

    2. I try not to mind being disappointed by books, because it happens, and that’s life, and there’s nothing you can do about it if you want to live an honest bookish life. But being disappointed by a YA romantic Christmas read that’s supposed to be insanely cute and magical? A couple of fairies in the dream world just died. Alright, I’ll try to get over it, but this was my first Christmassy read and I wanted badly to like it. Shake it off, shake it off. So what’s the problem with this stor [...]

    3. A cute, sweet and delightful holiday romance. My New Crush Gave to Me is a Hallmark Christmas Movie in book form. How the book would end was never in doubt. You know Charlie our erstwhile heroine is going to get the guy and she does. If you are a fan of cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie then this is your book.

    4. This book is so cute. Charlie is literally me (especially when I was in high school and crushing on a guy. Go her.). I loved J.D.! I need me one of him!

    5. I read My New Crush Gave To Me on Halloween which did feel a little strange considering the novel is set during Christmas time but honestly, reading this story was simply a pure and festive delight. The main character Charlie aka Charlotte plots to get the one person she wants to fall in love with and have a happy Christmas while creating fun memories to cherish. A plan to use Secret Santa to accomplish that goal opens up more questions than answers as Charlie realises that maybe her crush’s c [...]

    6. 3.75 stars Such a cute and fun Christmas read! I found the main character different from the "usual" female YA lead. I also LOVED J.D! This was a super predictable story but a lot of fun to read and perfect for the holidays.

    7. My New Crush Gave to Me was such a feel good and adorable novel. This book seriously made me feel all the warm and fuzzies! I love reading books that put me in the holiday spirit, and that book did just that! BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS!The author did such a great job at creating a cozy and adorable winter atmosphere for this book. I would almost compare it to a Christmas Hallmark movie! There were so many fun Christmas activities that the characters participated in that made me crave the holiday seas [...]

    8. Super cute & perfect for the winter season!It was kind of creepy how Charlie went to all those lengths rig the Secret Santa gift and to make the perfect gifts for Teo as her Secret Santa gift receiver, especially since they didn't really know each other???? But I did like the winter-y atmosphere and I liked how this ended. If you're looking for a fluffy, romantic, wintery contemporary, this one is for you.

    9. Full Review on the Blogcarolineandrus/blogI was in the mood for a light and fluffy YA romance and this one from NetGalley really did the trick. It was a quick, fun, and sweet read. To top it off, it's the end of August and I'm suddenly ready to set up my tree and string garlands and lights around my house!

    10. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Macmillan for the chance to read and review this cute holiday romance by Shani Petroff. I really loved the realistic look at the trials and tribulations of high school crushes, and how sometimes you end up feeling a bit foolish on the path to finding that guy or girl who's truly a good fit for you.Charlie is a fun MC to read about since she's a bit on the crazy-organized side and isn't afraid to let everyone around her know she expects no less from them. She's [...]

    11. 3.75 out of 5 Stars! This was a super cute read that would get any Grinch into the holiday spirit. Full RTC.

We follow Charlie Donovan as she searches for her dream date to Noelle Hawkins’ annual birthday party. Charlie is convinced she’s found her guy in Teo, star athlete, stellar GPA, and abs [...]

    13. For the second time this year, I experienced this feeling:So, I had just set aside two books that weren't working for me, and I was worried that I was falling into the dreaded reading slump 😲, and then along comes this wonderful book. Seriously, when I was done with this book, I felt so buoyant, my heart so light, that I wanted to dance atop a mountain while making a joyful noise.Reasons why I wanted to hug this book•Charlie was my type of girl. She was all about schedules and planning and [...]

    14. “My New Crush Gave to Me” would have been much better as a short story. As a book, it’s cute and a quick read, but there is a lot of filler in there. Once it finally picked up around the middle I enjoyed it, though I could never spend much time in real life around the main character, Charlie!This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.

    15. There's nothing like a quick and warm read to get you into a festive mood! My New Crush Gave to Me was fun in all the ways I expected since I had the pleasure of reading the author's debut novel.Not only does the cover scream winter holidays but the Christmas activities in the book gave all the festive feels. Furthermore the caroling and Secret Santa games paved the way to a cutesy love story. It was slow burn and super adorable to watch the characters realize their feelings.I love the story but [...]

    16. 2.5 starsI loved the synopsis of this and was quite eager to settle into a sweet Christmas story. I couldn’t get behind Charlie. I wanted to root for her, yet most of the time I was irritated with her and she just felt flat to me. I loved Morgan and JD was fun, so they were the reasons I kept reading. Plot wise, things moved along and it felt like nothing actually happened at the same time. I would have liked a little bit more at the ending, but it was sweet. Overall, it was cute, but still a [...]

    17. 3.5 STARSThis was way cuter than I thought it was going to be. I honestly didn't have the highest expectations going into this (Christmas romances have ruined my thinking here). But it surprised me and was really entertaining. Even though you basically know what will happen, I was still sucked into the love triangle and the hate-to-love romance (my fav trope!) that was happening. The story was really entertaining and I would LOVE to see this as a movie some day. The characters were pretty realis [...]

    18. I had some second hand embarrassment reading this book and that was mainly because high school me was a lot like Charlie. Love has always come down to a logical choice for me, even when I fail to see that. So parts were hard for me to read. But it was amazing at the same time. It captured a lot of my thoughts and wishes about Christmas, it had my favorite male in a YA novel in about ten years, and nothing felt out of place. As someone who has read and watched my share of cute Christmas stories I [...]

    19. A lighthearted and cute Young Adult romance just the way I needed. And so hard to put down I read this in one sitting. A 3.5.It's kind of funny how a Christmas-themed novel is released on Halloween. But yes, the plot centers around a secret santa that control-freak Charlie uses to get the perfect date for a lovers' extravaganza a classmate is giving the day after Christmas. But to have the perfect gifts to her Mister Ten Teo Ortiz, she will have to make concessions and ally with his cousin J.D w [...]

    20. Charlie needs a date for the biggest party of the year, and she has her eyes set on Teo Ortiz. She uses her position as editor of the school newspaper to get to know him better, but Teo's annoying cousin J. D the newspaper's photo editor, is always getting in the way. With her mother constantly busy with work, things aren't feeling very Christmasy. So Charlie tries to create a little holiday cheer of her own by rigging the paper's Secret Santa draw with a plan to win over Teo. The thing is, she [...]

    21. Four stars: A fun, holiday read with a terrific antagonistic romance, though it is a tad predictable. Charlie is dreading attending her friend Noelle’s holiday birthday ball, held the day after Christmas. This year, the party has a couples theme. Charlie was recently dumped by her perfect, smart, college boyfriend, and so she has no date. Desperate, she hatches a crazy plan to snag a date with one of the hottest guys in school: Teo Ortiz. Unfortunately, in order to land her dream date, Charlie [...]

    22. Charlie is troubled after her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her- right before the holidays, and right before a big, couple themed holiday party. A self-proclaimed control freak, Charlie decides to take matters into her own hands after setting sights on the boy she intends to bring to the dance. All she needs is a little Secret Santa magic, and the help of her arch nemesis, who just happens to be her crush's cousin.Compared to great, classic literature this wouldn't be a four star book. But if [...]

    23. This was 2 parts frustrating to 1 part cute. The main character was mostly bitchy and clueless, especially to her best friend and newspaper staff. The book was absurdly predictable, which is sometimes okay for a fluffy holiday romance, but really annoyed me here. There was a stereotypical mean girl person and a few other cardboard cutout characters. It’s a super quick read with some good holiday feels (Hanukkah and Christmas, plus a bit of New Years). I felt the ship but was too annoyed by the [...]

    25. I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. What I Liked:-There are a lot of YA books out there that I think are far too adult for the age group they’re marketed in, but I didn’t have that problem with this book. It seems geared more towards the younger end of the YA spectrum and is pretty clean. It’s the perfect amount of light and fluffy for a fun Christmas read.-I liked the characters. Charlie is very Type A and likes to be in control, but she means wel [...]
